Full description
An occult group has challenged you to uncover the identity of one of their most famous members. During this self guided experience, you will follow a treasure map and a series of clues left in an ancient book in order to unlock the lock box and discover his real name. You will pass by the major historical sites of the city on the 2.5km trail, solve puzzles, and learn about Golden Age Amsterdam. Do you have what it takes to solve the mystery? You'll have to play to find out! Other things to note All bookings are private. You will play with your own group - if there are other people they will play separately. We don't recommend playing alone. Part of the game goes through the Red Light District. Great for groups, great for teams and great for team-building! Large groups will be split into teams of 5 players who will then compete against each other.

One. First experience, the tour itself takes you through the city itself! The puzzles are relatively difficult, it requires an easy one, but are easy to solve with a bit of grip! Recommended for small adventures that want to learn something about the culture and history of the city with easy puzzles!

Ben was a great host - the game was challenging enough to require some thought but not too difficult for us to give up. Most importantly, we saw lots of Amsterdam as we were doing it! Recommended.
